    Love the classic trench. I have a Zara trench coat – similar to this one – and get rave reviews on it all the time.

    I have the BR trench in black, and really like it aside from the seemingly random flap of fabric over the top button on one side. Kind of odd.

    Belle- curious to know why you dislike BR products. They're not the most original (one should go elsewhere for a $200 cocktail dress or $100 jewelry, for example), but they do have sturdy, tailorable (!) basics. Just asking as a budget-savvy girl who loves massive seasonal sales at these types of stores.

    Valerie-I've had three blouses in a row that fell apart after one wear. BR has really lost something in the quality dept. over the past 18 months.

    Any tips on how to keep my belt from falling out when I wear it open?

    I had my tailor stitch my belt to the belt loops. He charged me $2.
